Why are many anti-media, having no television, avoiding listening to the radio, and ignoring the newspapers? I have heard lots of them give uncountable reasons, such as (1) to protect themselves and their children; (2) it’s mostly full of bad news; (3) it’s a waste of time; and (4) it’s gradually becoming immoral.
“But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”Joshua 24:15b NLT
I will dwell on the last point in this post. That aspect of unbecoming in the face of modernity is the problem. One of the Christian Post’s recent articles mentioned a teacher who gave her pupil a breast binder and told the latter to conceal it from her parents. Reading such posts forces one to question this viral gender transformation phenomenon, which ultimately depicts the expansion of immoral sin. Today, different jurisdictions permit gender modifications, targeting children as the priority. There used to be a time when we said children are innocent, which is not sadly a shifting conservative belief. At least not anymore. One can then asks where their parents are. Whose choice to decide who must change their gender or now?
Some may counterattack, justifying it is about feeling good from the inside out. However, understanding that is far from Jehovah’s agenda is essential. The Lord made man and woman in His image. He did not make a mistake. For anyone to think that their body is the wrong person is a direct confrontation with Jehovah’s creation.
As we evolve with the world, must we develop in the wrong direction, thereby forgetting or pushing aside the principles of our Lord Jesus Christ?
